It's not everday you see a blue church. Great photo op and "must do" stop because you get two iconic structures for the "price" of one, with the lighthouse so close. We went here on a guided bike tour and got to hear about it...More

Very nice square to walk around with two lighthouse close to the church. The church is very simple, small , but well build. Very silent, nice to have a pray in between all the visits.

It's a small church, very modern and neat in the oldest part of the península de Punta del Este. It's in a corner of a beautiful old plaza where there´s also the Punta del Este Lighthouse. The church is worth the visit and the sorroundings...More

It is a warm place, very well kept in front of the lighthouse. It is a quiet area and you should not miss, not only for simplicity but also surrounded by good places to eat after Sunday Mass.

We were driving by and saw this beautiful blue church and it was open so we stopped in to see it... Very worth the look and the visit. The inside is as cute and beautiful as the outside.

A small but beautiful plaza in the old town area featuring the Iglesias church, lighthouse and some beautiful private homes. Worth visiting on a sunny day. A short 5 minute walk to the marina and about 20 minutes to the Playa Bravia beach and 'hand'.

This simple but beautiful church is located next to the lighthouse. No much to see in there, but it worth a visit.

Lovely chapel, very well cared for with an ocean view. We enjoyed the Sunday mass which is at 12:00 during the summer.

In a city that lacks distinguishing landmarks (other than The Hand), this little church stands out and has an interesting interior. Worth a stop on the main walking route.
